In this animated adaptation of the popular children’s book series, Kevin Hart and Thomas Middleditch play two kids who constantly prank their cruel teachers. Using a cereal box prize hypnotism ring, they convince their principal (Ed Helms) to become a superhero they created, Captain Underpants. They decide to permanently override the Principal’s personality and create a new ‘alter-ego’ (I mean…wow, these are the heroes?) it turns out they need the Captain when Professor Poopypants comes to town and tries to stop them all from laughing at his name forever with the Turbo Toilet 2000. Jesus, is this for real? WTF? But those crazy kids in the animation crew said it was pretty good. Well, still. Better them than me. Listen to their review right here.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
